  Place Points
Caston High School 2nd 63

Micah Colvin finished Second place to lead the Comets in Saturday’s race. He was followed up by Austin Dague and Dakota Oldfather in 8th and 9th. The scoring Comets were rounded out by Luke Lowe and Marshal Finke in 21st and 27th. Finishing out the Comets runners were Byron Rentschler in 29th and Wyatt Brumett in 32nd.
It was a great day for running, and the guys did really well over all. Winamac came out really strong with all five of their scorers finishing All Conference or Honorable Mention, and we just weren’t able to overcome that. It didn’t help that two of our seniors had two Conference soccer matches this week (with Comets Soccer clinching the HNAC title), and we’ve got several runners injured. We’re always looking forward. This one’s in the record books. Would it have been nice to 3 peat at Conference? Of course. That said, one meet does not a season make. We’re going to train hard, and race next week at Sectionals just the same as we would have if we took the trophy home today. The goal is to push as far into the postseason as possible. Every meet along the way is a learning opportunity towards that end.
